The name of Christopher Hawk appeared on the wartime roster of the seventh regiment of the Albany County militia.
A Christopher Hawk was a "constable" in Kinderhook and was involved in wartime activities in that part of the county. His account for sixteen shillings appeared in the records of the Albany Commissioners. Perhaps a different Christopher Hawk was named on a roster of Royalist recruits.
At this point, in this skeletal sketch we have sought to make some sense of the life of a one-time Albany resident. Following a broad sweep of Internet-based resources, too many life questions remain unresolved. Thus, we move on for now!
Sources: The life of Christopher Hawk is CAP biography number 8370. This sketch is derived chiefly from family and community-based resources.
